An address was made to the delegates
during the session by George Thomp
son of Chicago, a representative of th?
Chicago Cigar Makers' union, which
authorized him to visit Hock Island an I
address the convention. He emphasiz
ed common interests both the liquor
dealers and the cigar makers have in
personal liberty in their commercial
pursuits, and in the opposition to the
trusts and illegal combines existing to
their detriment. He stated the manner
of the breweries and other large inter
ests in controlling all saioou property
of a city and raising the rental of it to
an abnormally high sum. The blue
label cigars were upheld by the speak
er, who urged the saloon men to deal
o'lly in the union make.

Romantic Story Regarding Clyde
Horne, Baseball Player, Comes
From Southern City.
- A romantic and somewhat mysteri
ous" story cif a former Rock Islander,
Clyde Home, comes from I'eoria and
Canton, regarding the accomplish
ments of Mr. Horne along another line
than baseball, in which he made a
success at Peoria after removing
from the city five years ago
and more recently as manager ef
the Canton Grays. The story has to
do with the affairs of Mr. Home and
Miss Uertha Stanton of Canton. Th
mystery lies in the question as to
whether the young people have been
married, or are now planning an
elopement. The difficulty arose be
cause of objections on the part of th-
young woman's mother, Mrs. Stanton.
The young people were together Sun
day evening, and Monday morning
parental objections crystallized, and
the story goes that there was some
thing of a scene. Miss Stanton wen:
to a telephone office where she was
employed, resigned her position, drew
her pay, and returning home began
packing her belongings. Her nioth-v
objected, and was then told that tho
couple had been married in Peoria

Monday Mr. Horne told a sister of
Miss Stanton that he and Miss Stanton
were married in I lock Island last No
vember. No entry of their having se
cured" a marriage license here appears
on the records at the county clerk's
office. The supposition is that the
story of their marriage is told merely
to throw relatives off the track, and
that they intend to be married later.
Mr. Horne stated that Miss Stanton
had departed for Rock Island to secure
a certificate, and would return to Can
ton today. However, whether the mar-
iage has already taken place or will
take place in a few days, Mr. Home's
many friends here extend liim their
